Jeanette Wong (1960) was group executive responsible for the Institutional Banking business at the Singapore-based DBS Group, until March 2019. Previously, she served as chief financial officer of DBS Group between 2003 and 2008. Jeanette Wong has spent more than 30 years working in different senior management roles within the financial industry in Singapore.

William Dudley (1953) became chief executive officer of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York (NY FED) in 2009, a position he held until 2018. In that capacity, he served as the vice chairman and a permanent member of the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC).
